A Teacher’s Reflection: Building a sense of self to build a sense of self in others
Surrey Teacher Kelly Shuto reflects on the importance of personal self-awareness as the first step in building self-awareness in students and the ability to self-assess core competencies.
“My goal as a teacher is to get them to a place where they can help each other before they even think to come to me for help. I needed to be familiar with the language and really understand what this language meant for me in my life, because I needed to understand it to be able to teach it. Who am I as a thinker, and what kind of questions can I ask because kids always ask way bigger questions.” – Kelly Shuto
